WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army has updated its 17-year-old rule book on espionage to specifically require that troops alert authorities if they suspect classified leaks to the media.

The revision seems aimed at the service's WikiLeaks debacle. Earlier this year, an Army intelligence analyst was charged with providing a classified video to WikiLeaks, an anti-war organization that describes itself as a government whistleblower.

The new Army regulation requires that troops notify authorities if they suspect that classified information has been leaked and directs the Army to create a central system to collect threat reports.

The regulation was first reported by the Federation of American Scientists' Secrecy News blog.
